EASA can audit a national authority and issue findings and require the NAA to shape up. However, EASA has no mandate to take any real action such as revoking an NAAs oversight and right to issue licenses or certificates. If EASA finds that an NAA is not complying with the regulations, EASA will report to the EU Commission whom together with the Council of ministers have the power to take any real action. Given the status of some NAAs in Europe that have been reported earlier, it's more likely that MOL will get on his knees and apologise for the past 20 years than the EU-C and Council taking any action.
